Holloway still doubts survival hopes

07 Oct 2010 - 14:07:02

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway still has doubts that his side have got enough quality to survive in the Premier League, despite the Seasiders making a fine start to the season.

Holloway's men have earned ten points from their first seven league games, winning 2-1 at Liverpool on their last outing, but most pundits still expect them to be relegated at the end of the season.

Holloway told The Gazette: "If we end up with anything like a third of the points the team that finishes top has, then I'll be absolutely chuffed as a badger.

"That would mean we'll have well over 30 or 35 points, because teams that win this league are that good - they are over 60 points better than that.

"The reality is that two teams who finished 21 and 32 points above us in the Championship last season are now with us in this division, so where on earth are these three teams that are going to be worse than us?

"We've got to stay solid, keep working and trying to perform to a level which is good enough for this league.

"But I hope everybody in Blackpool thinks this is the best trip they've ever been on."
